|Lecture hours per week|
|Lab hours per week|
This course takes a multidisciplinary approach to the relationship between migration and globalization. It encompasses historical, social, economic, geographical, environmental, and political dimensions to deepen understanding of the patterns and processes of globalization and the interdependence of people and places around the world. It examines the theories of the causes of migration, challenges to immigration policies as instruments of regulations and control, issues of inequality associated with the social and economic integration of immigrants, particularly their labor market experiences, and integration issues for immigrants. Case studies offer insight and understanding in an area of increasing national and international importance.
